A company called the ‘Illustrated Map Company’ has produced a vintage style map of Hornchurch that I’m sure many people would like to see framed on their wall.
We spoke to Rosemary Fugeman about the company and map:
I founded the Illustrated Map Company last year as I wanted to combine my skills in illustration and design and also my love of maps!
I’m from Hornchurch originally so it was a must for me to illustrate the town where I grew up.
I start my maps by illustrating the roads, then the road names followed by illustrating places of interest in the town. It helps if I have been to the town but it’s not always possible, so I have to learn as much about the place beforehand so that I don’t miss any important landmarks.
When I’ve finished the map I send it off to our fine art printers who then work their magic to create our wall maps. If you would like a copy of the Hornchurch map then visit http://www.theillustratedmapcompany.com/product-page/hornchurch-wall-map.
